I am a daily reader of The Week website. It gives me a totally different view of the world than many others around today. If you really want to stay informed about what is going on in the world you need to read/watch a variety of sources. Even Fox News is part of my read/watch list, but I must admit that I hold my nose when see things with that moniker attached.
Getting back to the topic of this post I loved the cover of the latest paper copy of the week. It says it all about endorsing Donald Trump for president. It seems, but maybe the other shoe will soon drop, that the two dominant leaders of the GOP have decided to get in bed with Mr. Trump.
That says a lot about that brand of politics. Gone is the conservative agenda to be replaced by something completely different. Abandoning all the rhetoric about abortion and such. Both these guys seem to say that a President Trump is MUCH better than a President Hillary. Putting party above principle seems to be the path chosen by too many in both political parties right now. I don’t know about you but “anything” in my mind would be better than a President Trump. But then again we did survive eight years of Reagan and Baby Bush so I imagine, or maybe just pray, that we would survive a Trump presidency.
We need a paradigm shift in our search for our primary energy resource but maybe even more importantly we all need one in the way we govern ourselves and how we drive our economy. How that happens I have no idea.
Keeping with the print copies of news sources I just got the weekly Time Magazine paper copy with the title “CAPITALISM – The Markets are choking our economy” That will be an interesting read that I’m sure will produce a few posts in the near future.
I know this post is a mishmash of thoughts but that is just how I feel lately…. Maybe that is a symptom of the Trump syndrome, I don’t know… I guess I will have to consult my spokesman about that…
